    Description

      As per attached screen shot in resources, when one uploads a file it currently specifies the maximum size limit:

      "You can only upload 20 MB worth of files at one time. You may need to upload large files one at a time."

      Since these maximum sizes can be overriden by using Web Dav there should be a parenthetical comment informing users of how to override it:

      "You can only upload 20 MB worth of files at one time. You may need to upload large files one at a time. (To upload files larger than 20 MB please use WebDav)"

      The WebDav should be an active link to the WebDav instructions. Although there may be some lack of agreement as to whether the parenthetical comment should be available to students and instructors, it should at least be there for admins. (Admin usability is important too!)

      In addition, in the sample sakai.properties that ships with the following comment should be changed from:

      1. upload limit per request, in megs
        content.upload.max=20

      to:

      1. upload limit per request, in megs (this can be overriden by users when they use webdav)
        content.upload.max=20
